In the class we will cover Inkscape basics:

- Understanding paths and nodes and how to manipulate them
- The differences between pencil tool, pen tool and brush tool
- How to personalize the side bar
- How to use the text tool
- Fun with filters
- File saving and sharing

Computers will be provided. Need help installing Inkscape on your own computer? Feel free to bring it along and we'll help!

This class is ages 16+. Youth aged 12-15 may attend for free, but must be accompanied by a paying adult.
